I had recently posted the following thread, regarding Components and Blocks Automation
@matjaz responded initially (very much appreciated) and “tagged it as a feature request”.
But I wanted to post an Official Feature Request as well as expand upon the idea further.
I have lately been thinking about it further and wanted to express the following:
- Automation - Already talked about in the previous linked thread above
- Library - So they can be used application wide across projects not just in one project more easily
- Shareable Repository - Ability to search, share, install amongst users within the community
- More Standard Built in Components - Would be useful as well, in addition to the above 3 thoughts.
A good example of this is how Bootstrap Studio handles these things.
In addition to the automated approach of handling resources, the ability to have a component library accessible ‘application wide’ across all projects within the app makes development a lot more easily automated for repetitive tasks, rapid development or initial project scaffolding before further customization. The ability to share components, blocks, etc., via a searchable repository allows for the community to get involved and assist each other in sharing resources and meeting these objectives.
Again, I think Bootstrap Studio does a nice job of these things as it continues to develop rapidly, recently they began adding “Built-in-Components” and seem committed to continuing to expand this library. It’s not as feature rich as Pinegrow Pro is overall, but these features really standout given the cost difference ($25 vs $99) of the two apps.
I think Pinegrow Pro and it’s users could really benefit from similar features. I hope moving forward Pinegrow Pro will consider these things. As a side note, I also hope that in general the Pinegrow Pro version will get as much love as the Wordpress version seems to be getting lately (docs, features, general overall attention).
Thanks for taking time to review this feature request and idea(s), keep up the great work Pinegrow Team. I’m looking forward to any feedback the Pinegrow Team may have to offer here or from the community in general, thanks everyone.
Looking forward to additional updates, features and Version 3 when it arrives.
